About the SOBC Athlete Input Council

The SOBC Athlete Input Council advises SOBC on important ideas and issues. They gather and share feedback from fellow athletes.

The SOBC Athlete Input Council has athlete representatives from each Region around the province, serving two- or three-year terms (staggered to ensure continuity for the council). The council members all have Athlete Leadership experience from previous courses and roles.

All members of the SOBC community are welcome to contact their respective Regional representatives to share their suggestions and ask for Athlete Input Council feedback and leadership on Special Olympics initiatives and ideas!

The SOBC Athlete Input Council meets virtually five to six times a year.

This is the provincial Athlete Input Council. Locals and Regions can have their own Athlete Input Councils as well. SOBC provides Athlete Input Council training to interested athletes. Please contact SOBC's Chelsea Tambellini to learn more!
